As home ownership gets further out of reach, and social and public housing remains limited, more people than ever are competing in the private rental market. Governments at all levels can no longer ignore this issue. Join this discussion of the policy options that would make housing more affordable and available for all Tasmanians.

Moderated by Meg Webb, Manager, Social Action and Research Centre, Anglicare Tasmania
